DanceLife Retreat Center

DLRC Logo White

Rhee Gold, the DanceLife Retreat Center’s owner and director, has created a unique home away from home that welcomes a world-wide following of dance school owners, their office managers and teachers. The objective is simple; create a beautiful place to learn, share and rejuvenate the dance spirit. In 2012, Gold opened the doors to his 7,000 square foot log and stone residence featuring a gorgeous studio and meeting space that creates the perfect atmosphere to grow and study. The fully restored stone fireplaces and beautiful lodge décor, outstanding landscape and acres of pine trees create a sense of peace from the moment you arrive. All of this located in the New England town of Norton, Massachusetts.

In a small group setting, Rhee Gold and guests will facilitate a retreat to rejuvenate your dance spirit. Join like-minded teachers and studio owners who live the life as you revitalize your passion to be the best mentor, leader, teacher (studio owner) that you can be.

One of the truly amazing things about the DanceLife Retreat Center, people walk in as strangers and end with hugs as new friends. It's a really special place!
